Smart Meters

Hi, what is the latest on the smart meter situation please? We’re keen to trial one if it’s possible still. Probably a daft question, but are there any complications if you have (as we do) solar panels?

Hi @martin226. We’re aiming to roll out our second generation smart meters mid-2018. These will be compatible with all suppliers, unlike the first generation ones that exist now.

We’re really excited about the launch and we’re working hard on the strategy. We’ve put you on the list for the trial which we’re running early next year.

There shouldn’t be any problems with your solar panels and a smart meter. As you’re probably aware, your FiTs will continue as normal with your previous supplier. Until we become a FiT licensee :slight_smile:

Hope that helps.
